There’s a psychological twist embedded in our floor coverings; they’re the lowest things in a room, and yet they’re often the first things we notice.  Particularly when the actual bones of our homes are less than delightful to look at, rugs can cover all manner of sins while establishing a room’s color palette, setting the tone for the space, and drawing contrasting elements together to make them look cohesive.  Today’s roundup hovers somewhere between modern and traditional; these transitional pieces are bold and bright, yet safe enough to let you take risks or be cautious in the rest of your decor without worrying about what will clash and what won’t.  They’re sort of like the glue that holds a space together, and we have to say, that’s some good-looking adhesive indeed.
